Recipe by Julesong
A simple, fast, and delicious recipe! Scallops, lump crabmeat (careful not to break up the lumps while cooking), or lobster can be substituted for the shrimp.

This was the easiest recipe I have ever used for shrimp! This was the best tasting sauce by far. I used egg noodles, and added a bag of broccoli into the sauce before serving. I also used Tony Catchers Cajun seasoning in place of the cayenne pepper-because I didn't have any. The whole family LOVED this dish! I will be making this again-it is a keeper!!!
